Opportunistic relay selection (ORS) is a promising approach for cooperative communications owing to its low complexity by activating only the best relay. However, in mobile scenarios, the channel state information (CSI) estimated in relay selection may be different from the actual CSI employed in data transmission due to relatively fast varying channels,(More)
Dehydration-Responsive Element Binding proteins (DREB)/C-repeat (CRT) Binding Factors (CBF) have been identified as transcriptional activators during plant responses to cold stress. The objective of this study was to determine the physiological roles of a CBF gene isolated from a cold-tolerant perennial grass species, Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.),(More)
Salinity-affected and heavy metal-contaminated soils limit the growth of glycophytic plants. Identifying genes responsible for superior tolerance to salinity and heavy metals in halophytes has great potential for use in developing salinity- and Cd-tolerant glycophytes. The objective of this study was to identify salinity- and Cd-tolerance related genes in(More)
Multi-species compartment epidemic models, such as the multi-species susceptible–infectious–recovered (SIR) model, are extensions of the classic SIR models, which are used to explore the transient dynamics of pathogens that infect multiple hosts in a large population. In this article, we propose a dynamical Bayesian hierarchical SIR (HSIR) model, to capture(More)
The classic susceptible-infectious-recovered (SIR) model, has been used extensively to study the dynamical evolution of an infectious disease in a large population. The SIR-susceptible (SIRS) model is an extension of the SIR model to allow modeling imperfect immunity (those who have recovered might become susceptible again). SIR(S) models assume observed(More)
In a non-gyro micro inertial measurement unit (NGMIMU), the coupling error reduces the system measurement precision obviously. Based on the definition of the coupling error, a new static decoupling method applied total least squares (TLS) algorithm is proposed. TLS considers not only the error of accelerometer output, but also the calibrating error of the(More)
Objective To identify the effect and mechanism of recombinant platanus pollen allergen 2 (rPla a2) on the transcription and expression of orosomucoid 1-like 3 (ORMDL3) gene in NIH3T3 cells. Methods Quantitative real-time PCR and Western blot analysis were used to detect the influence of rPla a2 on the mRNA and protein levels of ORMDL3 and GATA3. After(More)
